Pastor Marvin Williams of Trinity Church in Lansing tweeted late this afternoon about the concert at his church with the African Children's Choir. With two hours before the event, I tweeted him back and asked if we could get in without tickets.
Within a couple of minutes, Pastor Williams tweeted me back that he wasn't sure, but that my wife and I should still come to the free concert. And we did.
What super-wife and I saw were kids from Uganda and Kenya who had lost parents and had every reason to not smile and show joy. Through songs, smiles and high energy dance moves they gave an eloquent testimony to their faith in God. They have hope. They gave some to everybody there tonight, including me. Check the video from another performance. What do you think?
